Denali Park, Alaska.
I live near Denali National Park and have made my home in Alaska for 53 years, mostly self-employed as a nature photographer and writer. Alaskans are dabblers in varied skills and job descriptions, and I am no different, having also taught college courses in journalism, worked as a carpenter, military game warden, and wildlife technician. I have also built log homes and guided wilderness trips. I obtained a commercial pilot’s rating but had the sense to abandon that pursuit in favor of less stressful, creative endeavors. I have traveled all over Alaska but find the central Alaska Range the most compelling.
